Noods Radio is hiring two new label assistants

The station is using its Youth Music funding to take on two young people as label assistants.

Bristol-based radio station Noods Radio was among the successful applicants for Youth Music’s Incubator Fund. The fund is designed to help open up access and break down barriers to sustainable careers in music for people aged 18-25, particularly those who are underrepresented.

Noods is using its grant funding to launch a new programme called Test Pressing, where Noods will work with two 18 to 25-year-olds as their label assistants. The assistants will work closely with the Noods team and take on various liaison and commissioning duties. Furthermore, the team behind the station will guide the two assistants through the entire production process of launching three new records. Masterclasses will be helmed by industry professionals and a dedicated mentor. Staff from Crack Magazine, Saffron, Timedance, Black Acre and more will lead the workshops.

These are paid roles which will run from March to October 2021. Those applying do not need to have prior experience in the music industry. Requirements include a passion for underground music, good organisational skills and an interest in acquiring more experience. Noods is actively encouraging applications from underrepresented communities within the creative industries.

Applications are open until 17 January. For more information, head here
